Port Stanley’s Windjammer a yummy year round delight 

The Windjammer’s dining room is a lovely setting

The Windjammer’s fresh, local, seasonal fare is amazing. I loved visiting the Windjammer in the summer and most recently in the fall and can’t wait to try it in the winter too. While the patio is delightful so is their elegant dinning room, and I especially like sitting by the fireplace. 

There’s no wrong choices from this great menu

I fell in love with the Windjammer’s menu because of their variety of fresh and local fish. Kim has ensured that there are no wrong choices, and because of that everything there is my favourite, including their tea, wine and ice wine options. The food and beverage service from Anne was just as cosy and warm as the setting I was in.

By the fire with tea and fish cakes

The pickerel cakes are so warming, comforting, yet light, fresh and left me with a healthy glow! The pickerel is local from Lake Erie. The cakes are so light, with a great crunchy panko crust and soft center and the tartness of the lemon dill aioli compliment it so well and it all goes great with the bitter and sweet greens, tomatoes and honey mustard dressing.

Even the tea setup is so visually pleasing, with the white pot and floral tea cup. I ended up purchasing Mighty leaf’s Rooibos Organic African nectar after this visit as I loved the flavours of hibiscus, marigold and rose.

  For an amazing soul hugging meal, the Crepes Neptune has a lot of great flavours in the shrimp, scallop and crab. I love the taste poping toppings of chives and crunchy onion bits. 

Cornmeal dusted perch is the perfect combination of fresh fish and lightly crunch batter.

I also recommend the amazing “Cornmeal dusted perch” followed by their decadent flourless chocolate cake with a glass of Quai du Vin‘s sweet and smooth maple Ice Wine.

The perfect ending, chocolate and sweet wine

About Marsha Idella

It's my Edible Journey! I love food. I love love love chef tastings. Eating out inspires my home cooking. I’m passionate about sharing the foods I’ve tasted – made by someone else or me. I love sharing my journey through food, advising where to eat and what to eat. Sometimes it’s a homemade meal, a nearby restaurant, a culinary vacation or a food themed event. I love sharing food photos and their descriptions just as much as eating, but I also need to archive my foodie photos and recommendations thus far so that I don’t forget where I’ve been. Sometimes it is about eating the same thing twice – especially when you want to share that experience with someone or just relive it. “This is amazing, you gotta eat this”
